The Blue Pill or the Red Pill?

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

I was trying to recreate a certain iconic movie scene with my son. It proved to be rather challenging. Oh, one fun fact about this video: I actually said the pills in the wrong order so I fixed that in editing. Can you tell?

Google Cardboard

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Apparently, Google has this annual conference called Google I/O, which I just learned about this year. And one of the things they featured this year was this thing called Google Cardboard, which actually uses a little bit of code that I wrote for … uh, this thing that I’m working on.

If you haven’t heard of Google Cardboard, it’s like an Oculus Rift but made out of cardboard (TechCrunch called Google’s version, “Mockulus Thrift“). If you haven’t heard of Oculus Rift, it’s a virtual reality headset. You put it on and you see a stereo image that reacts to the way your head is turned. The great thing about the Google Cardboard is that it’s an easy way to experience virtual reality.

Anyways, I ended up getting one of these things so you can watch me putting one of these together with the obstruction help of my son.

Haircut, Year 4

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

I got the day off today so I finally had time to put together a video of a hair cut that I did a couple weeks ago. (The original footage was about half an hour long.)

One of the nice things about cutting Dyson’s hair is that it gives me the opportunity to record everyday interactions with him. Also, it’s interesting to see how much he’s changed in a year and a half, since the last time I did one of these videos. For example, he’s way more talkative now…
